Health Tip Of The Day! :)

As you may know, I am a health fanatic (See below posts). I have talked a bit about fiber, however I am now going to post health tips every few days for those of you who need a little boost in the health department.

It's my dream to create a career around my fiber mix and the lifestyle I live. I want to spread my passion and love for healthy eating to as many as I can. My beliefs are a little weird, yet after years of experimenting with different foods and practices, I can finally say that I have control over my weight, body and life!

So here's your food tip of the day:

Miltons Whole Grain Bread (in the red packaging). You can find it at any regular supermarket. There are 5 grams of fiber in each slice and only 90 calories in one slice of bread. There are a lot of other whole wheat breads that pose as high fiber, but this one is the best!


Even adding 5 grams of fiber a day can make a difference! :)

And don't worry about the carbs that come from whole wheat bread. The amazing thing about fiber (to put it simply) is that it essentially cancelles out the carbs, sugar and calories! I make sure to have one slice with egg whites in the morning and sometimes for lunch I will make a sancwhich with two slices. Instead of picking up a high calorie salad or sandwich from the store, make a sandwich with this bread. That's 15 grams of fiber!!

The more fiber the better... however if you don't eat much fiber, it may shock your system. So start slowly and build up. I promise you will start to look and feel better in no time!

Stay tuned for more tips :)

  1. yay! I'm looking forward to more tips.

    Recently I developed some kind of allergy to flax, not sure if its just because I've been eating too much of it or something else but it's been making me insanely bloated to the point where I can't move, so I had to cut it out of my diet, so I'm really looking forward to more updates.
